I made this wedding dress for my friend from high school. she came up with the elements of the dress she wanted (strapless, sweet heart neckline, wide waist band and big back bow with organza), and I put them together as a dress. we went to fabric shopping together to pick up fabrics and notions.
it took forever to make this, but the result was fulfilling. there are so many things that i would have done differently in retrospect (like the hem, you can see the stitches :( ), but i was generally happy with how it came out, and it fit her perfectly!
i wrote a series on my blog about my wedding dress making journey.
satin, organza, zipper, rhinestone, pearls, interface, underlining, horsehair braid
